To Book Now Click Event Date on the Calendar First.

Join us for an evening of bliss as we paddle into the sunset. Choose our Poulsbo or Port Gamble location--you'll likely see seals, eagles, osprey and other wildlife. We often run into pods of dolphins and porpoises at our Port Gamble location, and we've paddled with a pod of orcas in Liberty Bay!

On clear nights Port Gamble has amazing views of the Olympic Mountain range and the Hood Canal. Poulsbo has a large group of resident Harbor Seals that have their pups in late July and August, and has a beautiful view of Mount Rainier if the skies are clear. All locations have great pubs and restaurants to visit afterwards too!

Everyone gets a brief lesson or refresher before heading out in search of wildlife and relaxing adventure. Your guide will share their knowledge about the rich human and natural history of the area, and will be open to answer any question that you have for them--from paddling techniques to marine biology.

No experience needed and ALL ages are welcome (seriously--babies through Grandmas)! We use stable double kayaks unless you request otherwise.

10% off for groups of 4 or more people.

This tour is available any evening for groups by request, in Poulsbo, Port Gamble or other local areas.

"Thank you again for scheduling the Saturday outing for our group. It was wonderful, Hawk was an excellent instructor and everyone had a great time, and 4 of us would like to sign up for the SK-2 class this Thursday evening."

~Julia Atwood

"Thank you so much again for the fabulous lesson today! We all had an absolute blast. When Kendall’s mom dropped Kate off at our house this afternoon, the girls were begging us to go tomorrow. They were offering to pay for it, even! I think we’ve got some lifelong SUPers on our hands..."


"I actually went to the shop two weekends ago to buy the boys their wetsuits. They stocked a lot of really great equipment for my kayak building projects. It is good to know that they can order items that are not on the website as well, as I am always looking for parts that are difficult to find sometimes."
